Modern techniques in hair grafting (the most recently performed method of transplanting hair) are performed by taking small pieces of hair bearing scalp from the back and sides of the head and moving them into holes and slits on the top of the head. This technique is commonly called hair grafting, folicular unit transplantation or hair transplantation. This procedure is performed by many physicians and in many clinics throughout the world. No new hair is added – hair and skin are relocated.
